EndoWar is an event with the goal to gather donations for an association fighting against endometriosis (ENDOmind), through merciless battles opposing Kings and Queens specially invited for the occasion. MAIN EVENT: 16th and 17th of OCTOBER. The players of the event are: Gabi, Lavie head, Mica, Sunsetfire, Wraith, TheMole, Grunthor and Capout. FORMAT: Players will play on the 1v1 Empire Wars mode and on the RedBull Wololo V maps. Each player who wins a game brings one point back to his/her team. This means that, while a player may personally win the finale, his/her team still needs to have collected the highest number of points to win the overall tournament. One FFA will also be live-played and streamed with one or more special guests, who will be revealed shortly. Donation goals and give-aways will also be part of the show!

We've started doing weekly community nights for all AoQ members. We will be playing team games, fun game modes like CBA and occasionally we will also try out other games together. We have long list with ideas and look forward to playing more frequently with each other. No matter if the game is Age of Empires, Among Us or Cards Against Humanity, the ultimate goal is to have fun together and to bond more with the community. Most likely you will also see AoQ night live on Twitch at some point, since we have so many streamers in the community. I hope you will enjoy our girls night as much as we do.

Nodscouter's Relay Rumble
We want to promote a very special event today. Nodscouter is hosting the wonderful Relay Rumble - A tournament with a special twist: It's a team game event, but the players will each only be playing one Age. In this format it's mandatory that the players are switched after each Age up (there is an exception allowing one player to play Dark Age and Feudal Age if desired). Nodscouter is a popular member of the Age of Queens community and we recently added her as a mod on our AoQ clan server. She has already hosted the historic Rivalries Cup and she participated in lots of AoQ events. Here are the links to the more detailed rules and for the sign ups to Relay Rumble: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TciwHWjPV7fBLtSA9Ujwal53kVZKAT_Dnd2SoKQZCQQ/edit

Age of Queers
On Saturday 26th of June at 21 GMT we will be celebrating Pride Month in a special way. We are hosting our first public Discord stage event. Our fabulous speakers will be talking about their experience as an LGBTQ+ member of the gaming community. There will be the opportunity to ask questions and we hope to have a valuable dialog about these topics. I believe a conversation like this is important to raise awareness about the diversity of the community.

Age of Queens 1v1 Second Edition
Not too long after our first tournament we hosted another one: Age of Queens 1v1 second edition. This time the format was Single Elimination and in total 23 players participated. League 2 was for players below 1.1k 1v1 elo. Players with higher elo were competing in League 1. This is an aspect that was always important to me in the community: I want people to be included and allowed to participate in the events regardless of their skill level. I have heard from a lot of players 'I am not good enough to compete in a tournament.' and I believe events should always if possible be structured so that players can join in and have fun regardless of their skill level. Grouping the players together by skill level really helps to result in close games that are fun for everybody to play and watch. The total prize pool of the event was 150â‚¬. For details about the placing and the brackets check out the 'Past events' section of the website.

Age of Queens 1v1 First Edition
Originally, I thought Age of Queens would only be one event and I imagined that I would be hosting it as a 1v1 tournament for female AoE2 players annually. However, when I started contacting women of the community, most of them were thrilled about a server dedicated to them. The number of members increased quickly, and I noticed there was not only the need for one tournament. There was the need to get connected as a community. This is why the first edition of the Age of Queens 1v1 tournament will always have a special place in my heart. It is how it all started. In hindsight I have to admit not everything was perfect back then. With every tournament that the Age of Queens community has hosted we have modified the rules and improved them. I think this will be an ongoing process for a long time. I believe not too many people even heard about our very first tournament. Over time the movement behind Age of Queens became bigger and bigger. However, when I look back I am proud of what we did back then. It was a tournament with 25 participants playing in two Leagues. The format was double elimination. I think that is a lot of participants considering that the female community wasnâ€™t very well connected yet and the prize pool was symbolic (in total 70 USD worth of steam gift cards). This is how it all began.
